I like Thai Markets and this oine takes up most of the High Street through central Chiang Dao. Well worth taking time out to walk round it. Once a week on a Tuesday. It's hot and dusty - there are very few tourist trinkets here - but the Hilltribes visit in their traditional costumes and buy and sell their wears.... More

Having wasted a lot of time looking at "authentic" hill tribe crafts in the tourist markets of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, I really found this market enjoyable. It is simply a real market where local people (including the hill tribes) come to buy and sell everything from fresh vegetables, to clothes to hardware. We were here 2 hours and... More

Among all autentic thigs around Chiang Mai, I'm not sure why this market is even mentioned. I planned my 'day-out' around it and it was a great disappointment. The major attraction was the Thai cafe place at the end of it. Just skip it

I didn't see a lot I was interested in buying (except for food -- have a light breakfast). The real value here (for me) was people watching. Especially the hill tribe people who come down for the market. If you haven't seen many Asian markets, it is a sight to see. There are some very interesting things to see even... More

A bustling market with many bargains, frequented by both locals and tourists alike. I personally visited this market many times as I was in Chiangdao for 2 months.

Near the cave is a market that specializes in crazy varieties of ginger. I've never seen so many types. Some stalls also feature an unusual fern called Golden Chicken. It looks like an animal.
